A Fine Fall Morning

It is really starting to feel like fall here in Dallas. After a triple digit summer the cooler weather has everyone around here feeling young and feisty. The pups have an extra bounce in their steps, and I feel like a kid anxious for Halloween.

With the weather so flawless I decided I could not sit at my desk this morning so Allison & I packed up the laptops today and went to the Dallas arboretum to work outside this morning. She is finalizing 3 Warhols today and I am working on a few painterly projects. I just finished my 2nd Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. This girl is named Momma Rose, I love that name. She was fun and a bit of a challenge as her eyes were not showing up at all in the original photograph. I am very happy with her final artwork. Now I have to get back to Ding-a-ling the dolphin. I may have her proof ready by late tonight.

Thanks so much guys, this was really a fun one. Yea I love it when I can sit down with a photograph that might be missing a little something like eyes and then paint those in. Usually it is just an ear that gets cropped off or is hidden. My only complaint with my digital work is how many people think that computer software IS the magic...they have no idea how long it takes to create the magic, and that it involves a lot of skill that is tough to learn.
